    Default Between 500K and 1M Non-Citizens May Get Voting Rights in New York City

    Up to one million non-citizens living in New York City may obtain voting rights for local elections if a plan by Democrat city councilmembers is approved.

    Democrat city councilmembers are considering legislation that allows eligible legal immigrants to vote in citywide elections – similar to San Francisco, California, policy where non-citizens are allowed to vote in local school board elections.

    Anywhere between 500,000 to one million non-citizens in New York City would be granted the right to vote in local elections if the legislation is approved by the city’s 51-member city council, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] the New York Daily News.

    Pushing the legislation is Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez (D-Manhattan) along with 22 other Democrat councilmembers and the city’s Public Advocate Jumaane Williams.

    The law would give local electoral power to the city’s massive 3.1 million foreign-born population – making up almost 40 percent of the total city population. The majority of the city’s foreign-born population has arrived from the Dominican Republic, China, Mexico, Jamaica, Guyana, Ecuador, and Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, Bangladesh, and India.

    More than half of New York City’s foreign-born population speaks either Spanish or Chinese, and nearly [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] of the total foreign-born population is effectively nonproficient in English.

    Similar to the New York City Democrats, elected Democrats in the state’s legislature are [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that would automatically register to vote all eligible state residents who apply for driver’s licenses unless they check an “opt-out” box.

    As of this year, illegal aliens are [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] driver’s licenses in New York, indicating that illegal aliens and non-citizens will only be excluded from the state voter rolls if they check the opt-out box before applying for a license.

    Elected Democrats have argued there are safeguards in the legislation like mandating non-citizens and illegal aliens check the opt-out box.

    IMHO, these liberal crapholes should have to prove 'beyond a reasonable doubt' that the illegals there never voted in a national election, otherwise all the votes from said craphole should be null and void.

    well being they are being given free drivers licenses with no tests or proof of ID I'm guessing most are already enrolled to vote anyway....

    I am myself an immigrant, ( A legal one, I may add ) When I came to this country, back i n 62, I had to wait 1 year to obtain my legal status as a permanent alien, the so-called green card. Up to this point I was a parolee, still considered to be a legal status.
    Another year went buy and I was drafted into the Army were I served for 2 years and 1 year in that "paradise" that is Vietnam. After waiting 3 more year I was finally allowed to become an US citizen. Then, and only then, I started to vote.
    This idea to give the vote to non-citizens only serves to reduce the value and the encouragement of becoming a citizen and it is a complete mockery of our Democracy and a reducing of the value of being a citizen.
    But,then again, the DemocRATS are only interested in augmenting their ranks, and they see allowing no citizens to vote as a way to do so.

    Very simple, NO votes from NYC count towards any Federal election.
